Farnsworth Publishes Children’s Book

Associate Professor and Chair of Spanish and Hispanic Studies May Farnsworth recently published her first children’s book, “You’re Joking: Animal Jokes for Children.”

Appealing to young readers ready to laugh as well as budding biologists, the book includes 30 pages of illustrated jokes and a “Did You Know” section with information about the animals featured in the book.

Farnsworth coauthored “You’re Joking” with Vanessa Sorensen, a Cincinnati-based graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, printmaker and author.

Farnsworth joined the HWS faculty in 2007. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. in Spanish American Literature from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and her B.A. from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington.
